Poll: 20 Bond Baddies that could've Been...

Some actors were so good at playing bad guys that it would have been interesting to see them as the antagonists in the James Bond franchise. Alas, they're dead now and we will never have the chance to see how they'd do. This is a pity especially when you browse IMDb galleries and find images where these stars - even if their roles are utterly different - almost look as if they were already a charismatic evildoer from the spy's world.

Which of these pictures would have been the best "application photo" for its actor* to play a Bond villain?

(*working in or from 1962 on, when Dr. No was released)
